Jake Paul has used his photoshop skills to post a mock image of himself on the toilet ahead of his clash with UFC icon Anderson Silva.
After winning all five of his professional fights so far, the YouTuber will put his unbeaten record on the line on October 29 in Arizona, with him and the Brazilian agreeing an 187 lbs fight weight. The pair will slug it out over eight three-minute rounds.
And now 'The Problem Child' has taken to the toilet seat, literally, to promote both the clash and his new gambling venture. He posted a photo-shopped picture of himself placed on a loo, with his head on a body weighing considerably more than his own.

"9 days until I make history but first I’m getting this extra weight off on the toilet," he joked. "Oh and you can win $100,000 on Betr right now (next tweet)."
Sure enough, Paul's next post was a link to the Betr website, along with a video of him explaining how punters can win big on the clash with Silva. Last month, Paul launched his 'TikTokification of gambling' – via an app where people can place 'microbets' quickly.
The disturbing image prompted a mixed response from his 4.4 million followers, with @Muh_ryyMoore replying with: "That’s one way to show off all your tats in one pic. 10/10 for ingenuity and creativity," while @Kaylea47289036 joked: "I can't take you seriously like this." @APAHandle added: "This image is horrifying."
Will Jake Paul beat Anderson Silva? Let us know in the comments section.
Things however, will get a lot more serious next Saturday, with Silva set to represent a tougher test for Paul than either of his previous UFC conquests, Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren. Despite being 47, 'The Spider' has four boxing bouts to his name, winning three of them.
However, Silva has been handed a big warning by boxing icon Oscar De La Hoya, who has backed Paul for a KO win: "He doesn’t have too many fights (Silva). He loves boxing, is a hard worker, and has a lot of power. If he connects with Silva he’s going to knock him out."
Paul, 25, has not fought since a second successive win over Woodley in December. Since then, he's has a rearranged bout with Tommy Fury called off, with the Englishman barred from travelling to the US, whilst his clash with Hasim Rahman Jr was scuppered over weight issues.
